    Fodera's Emperor 5 Custom features an Alder body, a stunning Redwood top with flame figuring, a Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and Fodera/Duncan Dual Coil Pickups, all of which were pricey custom upgrades at Fodera.

    She displays a very warm tone with deep, fat lows, smooth mids, and a beautiful high end.

    Partial trades considered with dollars coming my way. Trade interest is primarily an Alleva Coppolo J5 but I will listen to other offers. Whatever is offered must be 5 string with 19mm string spacing at the bridge please. I won't entertain anything without those two specs.

    Credit Cards/Financing: I have this bass listed on Reverb as well, so if you want to pay with a credit card, or finance a purchase, these options are available through that site. Here's the link.

    Shipping is FREE to CONUS only. Because of CITES rules and the Brazilian Rosewood fretboard, I cannot ship this safely overseas. And no, I won't lie on the U.S. Customs paperwork.

    Comes in a beautiful Fodera embroidered logo HSC.
